Applied Bolting Technology

Applied Bolting Technology produces Squirter DTIs (Direct Tension Indicators) that supply a bright orange indication when bolts have been tensioned, making tight bolts easy to see. DTIs are load cells that ensure compliance with bolting standards and specs. Torque, Turn-of-Nut and TCs can all produce false-positive tension and regularly do: Torque scatter is ±40% for new bolts, and worse for weathered. Relying on torque is optimism, at best. TCs are torque bolts that are adversely affected by cold or wet weather. Turn-of-Nut can be defeated by misrepresenting turn angle, regardless of turn applied. DTIs read load. If a bolt is tight, a DTI will show it, independent of weather, torque, angle, tool or skill.

mBrace3D

mBrace3D is a state-of-the-art finite-element software specifically designed for plate girder and tub girder bridges. Its purpose is to invite steel bridge designers and erectors, together with state DOTs, to adopt 3D shell analyses in their daily practice. This is the most-refined analysis method and captures bridge behavior more accurately than 1D line girder or 2D grid analyses, including potential instabilities.

This improved level of accuracy and safety does not come at the expense of increased modelling time, as complex, curved and/or skewed bridge systems are generated parametrically in a user-friendly fashion.

mBrace3D covers all phases of the bridge lifecycle: erection of the steel superstructure, placement of the concrete deck, vehicle load optimization and load-rating analyses.

OpenBrIM

OpenBrIM is the world’s first and only on-cloud, collaborative, parametric information modeling platform that combines 3D modeling, FEA, CAD, code check, load rating, inspection and more in your web browser. It provides medium- and long-term asset management and engineering-hour efficiency with reusable parametric library components and parametric workflows that are designed per user and/or their customer processes. It dramatically decreases time-consuming tasks with the power of parametric automations, which leads to a quick design turnaround, reduced NRE, cycle time and time-to-market resiliency. Moreover, the parametric library concept enables a strong asset management where the model can be recalled rather than remodeled, allowing engineers to pass the design intelligence onto other engineers and stakeholders throughout the bridge lifecycle.

Penetron USA

Since Penetron’s inception in the late 1970s, its core product line of crystalline permeability-reducing and waterproofing products has been providing concrete durability and waterproofing solutions to transportation and bridge/civil infrastructure, water/sewage, marine and commercial/industrial projects. Penetron is sold worldwide and has supported thousands of successful projects.

Penetron’s core technology reduces the permeability of concrete, making it integrally waterproofed with self-healing capability as well as making concrete structures more durable and resistant to corrosive environments.

High-performing products alone do not make successful projects. To complete the cycle of “great products,” Penetron surrounds and supports its products with a strong team of dedicated people who are committed to providing the best support covering engineering, sales, order processing, onsite applications, product and project follow up, and customer satisfaction.

Portadam

For more than four decades, Portadam has been utilized as an effective temporary cofferdam solution, providing contractors a dry work condition while saving time and money. Traditional cofferdam and water-diversion approaches often are specified to allow the work to take place in the dry, but these can be very cumbersome—from a cost, environmental and scheduling perspective. Subsurface conditions, site conditions, site access and logistics often pose significant challenges to identifying the optimal design of a comprehensive engineered solution.

Our engineered system has been used in more than 6,000 water-related projects nationally and internationally. The Portadam system has no environmental impact due to its freestanding nature. Additionally, no ground penetration is typically required, thereby minimizing subsurface risk (environmental, cost and schedule) usually associated with sheet piling.
